“Good for first-timer to Asheville”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We really enjoyed our tour with Zack. He was funny and seemed to know his stuff. I wish walking tours had been offered instead of the bus; the bus was a "party" bus, very bachelor party-esque, which was not really our thing. Plus, the breweries were really close together! Several of the other people on the tour were (self-described) drunk by the third stop but they were all happy drunks. We visited Hi-Wire, Burial and Green Man. Overall, a very pleasant way to spend three hours. If I were to go to Asheville again, I would do a self-guided tour. But for a first-timer, the added benefit and knowledge imparted by a guide, was well-worth it.

“Yessssss!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

In case you were wondering if this tour is worth it or is any fun, YESSS is your answer. I went with a friend from out of town, and 2 other couples who flew into Asheville just that very day. Zaq picked us up at Wicked Weed and off we went to our first brewery. He is a great tour guide, very funny and knowledgeable and will get as involved and nerdy in the entire process of beer-making as your group wishes to get. It was laid back, I learned a lot, and I had plentttty of free beer. We had an awesome time, as did our new friends from the tour, and I will definitely not hesitate to go on another tour. Book it, you won't be sorry. ;)

“What a fun tour!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

This was our first time in Asheville, and upon researching what to do in the area we found Asheville Brewery Tour. Our guide Zach was awesome! He was fun and extremely knowledgable about beer and the brewing process! We tasted some really great beers, even ones I never suspected I would enjoy. Zach also recommended some tasty eateries...Wicked Weed was amazing! This was an awesome tour and we highly recommend going on your next trip to the Asheville area!

“What a great experience!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We booked the tour for Jan. 2, 2014. We met at Wicked Weed and hit 3 breweries. Hi Wire, Altamonte, and Greenman.
Zaq was great, very knowledgeable and funny. He answered everyone's questions and was very informative. We will certainly do the tour again on our next visit.
My one and only gripe is that my fiancé was told numerous times by phone and email that the tour weI booked would include Wicked Weed in the tour and it did not! We still had an absolutely great time and we have some great memories.
